There may be cheaper deals, but for me SSD reliability is a big factor. This OCZ is considered one of the most reliable, even described by Tom's Hardware as "OCZ may have built the most reliable consumer SSD ever."

Which is funny, because maybe 2 years ago they were easily the worst manufacturer and basically bankrupt when Toshiba bought them.

OCZ has made some serious garbage over the years, I'm not saying they still are but this is quite a turn around. Like someone saying Chrysler makes quality vehicles now.

Macrium Reflect is a good option that you may consider.

I agree with this statement about OCZ. People jumped in on the OCZ VErtex series and those were so unreliable but people bought in on the really great prices and reliability pretty much killed off this brand. With that said. I went ahead and looked in amazon and newegg for reviews on this particular deal.

and the reviews are impressive. I might actually get one to add into my HTPC.

Never thought I'd pick OCZ over Samsung but I just did. Looks like the OCZ 180 is miles beyond its failed predecessors, improved in every way possible AND its MLC AND 5 year warranty. A lot of the reviews compared this drive at or near the level of a 850 evo. I really need an SSD right now and I think it's worth the bite lol

Just bit and ordered one. This thing is so cheap compared to a Samsung EVO 850 that's for $150(when on a sale too) that this is a no brainer. Toshiba is really changing the OCZ process and this could start a trend so this brand can compete against Samsung. I had previously purchased Crucial branded SSDs cause they were so reliable but the latest models were sacrificed in order to gain performance and get close to Samsung levels. Now it seems only Samsung is the only one reliable until I saw this deal. If only people knew how good the Crucial brand was a few years ago then we wouldn't have a monopoly by Samsung.

Looking forward to getting this drive installed as my STEAM drive for my huge backlog.

Yes it is. Any 2.5" SSD would be compatible with the PS4.

I also looked carefully at the reviews at both sites to see the satisfaction rates, and notably the DISsatisfaction rates, and was duly impressed.
